Love Letter Campaign ~ Here's to Us

I'm writing a love letter to my hero on a day when I am struggling to find my love for you. I dread the holidays and this one was no different. You pushed everyone away including God. Although it's been years since you came home from going to war I'm still waiting for you to come all the way home. This year I realized that maybe you are never coming all the way home. Maybe when you go to war to protect and save a country, you go to save it for the people you left behind, the people who haven't been born yet or made citizens but you don't get to come home and enjoy the peace and safety you fought for. You save it for everybody else but not for you. So I wait and I hope. I refuse to give up. Perhaps some day you will make it all the way home, if you do escape the hell that came home with you in your mind, I will be here, waiting.

This blog post is part of The Love Letter Campaign... a project started by to encourage those who love a hero to write a letter sharing their story (where they started, what they've faced together, and why their love endures). It's not just for spouses, but also for parents, siblings, caregivers, and friends. It's about telling the "rest" of our stories... stories that continue despite PTSD, TBI, and the challenges of life after combat. To share your love letter or find out more about the campaign, visit
